THE TECHNOLOGY The TempTRIP Solution
Do you ever wonder why you (or your suppliers) are still using a Sharpie to write purchase order numbers onto temperature tags? Kind of silly in this day-in-age, isn't it? TempTRIP tags all have QR codes so you no longer have to do that! Simply scan the QR code with your smartphone and enter the information you want associated with the temperature tag. The data is stored, with the tag ID, securely in the Cloud so that anyone who has permission to see the tag's results can do so at any decision point along the transportation chain. The data is also easy to understand, so you always know what you're looking at.
Add important information to temperature tags at any time by simply scanning a tag’s QR code… no more hand-writing information on tags! Information can be added, using the QR code:
- by suppliers at the origin of a shipment
- by receivers at the end of a shipment
- to a fixed tag to assign trailer ID, cooler ID, facility, etc.
Tag Readers Sending Temperatures to the Cloud
When you look up "Plug-and-Play" in the dictionary, a picture of our Cellular Gateways should be right there! They communicate via cell directly to our Cloud system so all you have to do is mount them on the wall. Technically, if it's a metal wall, all you have to do is "let go" of the reader and our magnetic mounts take care of the rest. Yes, you do have to plug them in (it is plug-and-play, after all) but, even if you don't, the internal battery keeps the data-retrieving gateway running for two days, while you get your power sorted out. And speaking of plugging them in, our Cellular Gateways are powered via USB cable, AC adapter or solar panel, so they can be used for stationary use, in-transit use, or even in remote areas where no power is available.
Gateways can be installed with or without waterproof enclosures, depending on the application.
Place Cellular Gateways at a guard gate, a dock door, a truck yard, or in a truck cab... it's all good. The super SIM's in the gateways determine the best cellular carrier for constant connectivity, anywhere there's cell coverage. There is no need to set up networks or get permission to use existing IT infrastructure... once again, just plug-and-play!
What happens when our temperature tags get within 200 feet of a gateway? All the logged data flows to the Cloud and automatically alerts you via email, text, or phone call, of any issues with the shipment or facility temperatures (or humidity). Our smart Cloud system always knows when to update temperature data while shipments sit in the yard and how to bracket that data into accurate, meaningful results. Isn't that what we all want?
Smart Phones or Tablets
Sometimes you just want to handle things yourself. That's where our TempTRIP phone app comes in. You can find tags, upload data, assign Temperature Plans, add information, and view the latest temperature records and alerts on any android device, whether it's a phone or a tablet. Download the TempTRIP End2End app on the Google Play Store and configure the app for shipping, receiving, or even unattended facility monitoring. You can use your own device or purchase one of our TempTRIP-enabled devices and let us handle the mobile device management (MDM) functions such as updates, configurations, reboots, and troubleshooting.

TEMPERATURE PLANS Puts You in Control
Temperature Plans are TempTRIP’s way of allowing you to use a single temperature-logging tag for a variety of uses; it could be for frozen goods, fresh produce, room temperature pharmaceuticals, etc. But you don’t have to order different loggers, you simply select the applicable Plan online.
Plans are custom and can have any specification you need. They can be a simple high/low temperature warning or a series of detailed rules that align with targeted pathogens.
"FRESH" Temperature Plan
TempTRIP's EXAMPLE Temperature Plan, “Fresh”, includes groups with multiple rules per group. The first group is “Safety” and it is set to monitor the minimum requirement for products to comply. Alerts are turned on so if a temperature logger shows products out of the set specific range, users will be alerted.
The second group is focused on “Quality” and has tighter specifications. It is used not just to comply, but to push the envelope in improving product quality. Real time alerts are turned off because this group is used as a management tool over time.
The third group alerts for possible “Freeze Damage”. These specifications are used to alert users when fresh products get cold enough, for a long enough period of time to cause damage to the product.
